I see that some dependencies in 4.13 remain from 4.11.
Examples:

kde-base/kdebase-meta-4.13.0 depends on >=kde-base/plasma-workspace-4.11:4[aqua=] and the latest version of plasma-workspace in portage is 4.11.8.

There is also kde-base/libplasmaclock-4.11.8 installed (it is a dep of plasma-workspace and kdebase-meta).

Same thing with kde-base/libplasmagenericshell-4.11.8. Why do these parts remain from KDE 4.11?

Because plasma-workspaces is frozen at 4.11 and only gets minor bug fixes, enjoying long term support until kde-frameworks-5 and plasma-workspaces-2 are ready.

Now, kde-frameworks-4 is also frozen since 4.8 (or so), but still gets major version increments for compatibility.

What's actually receiving major updates is kde-applications, which will get one or two more major releases until everyone has migrated to kf5 and pw2. :)

I hope it'll be a smooth upgrade, not like with 4.13 thanks to Baloo.

Due to the substantial changes, I suspect it will be a bumpy ride similar to the KDE 3 -> 4 transition.

As for 4.13, there are many Baloo-related fixes expected in 4.13.1, and we expect to ship packaging improvements regarding the semantic-desktop USE flag.
